The academic year is divided into two terms. Each term has 3 Unit Tests and a Terminal Examination. Please refer to School Bulletin for exact class-wise subject-wise schedules. The latest schedule is enclosed as a pdf. Students answer these on examination stationery provided by school. Typed question papers are distributed in advance so that they can read the question paper before attempting questions. Seating arrangements in all the evaluation components is mixed (Class III onwards) to give students real-life competitive ambience.
Philosophy of the examination: The philosophy of the examinations is to provide a window of opportunity to the students to enable them to judge their performance, correct their mistakes and, in general, prepare for better grounding in the subject. This is one of the most significant educational processes of the school. The school would fail in achieving in achieving its goals if this is not executed in the right manner and spirit.
Children are promoted to the next class depending on their performance in different subjects. The school follows grading system resulting into relative ranking of children.
Pre school: There is no formal examination in the nursery and kindergarten. The grades obtained by these children would be purely based on continuous observation of child’s
attitude, interest and progress in general class work and tests, participation in class and in school activities. Normally, all the children would be promoted in nursery and kindergarten. However, in certain cases, if the child’s performance were below normal, parents would be advised to detain the child in the same class.
Class I – VII: From class I onwards, performances are discussed with parents individually at the end of each term. Minimum attendance (80%) is a pre-requisite for promotion to the next class. Promotions would be automatic. However, in certain cases, if the child’s performance were below normal, based on parent’s advice, a child may be detained in the same class.
Class VIII – XII: From class VIII onwards, both group and individual performances are discussed with parents at the end of each term. Minimum attendance (80%) is a pre-requisite for promotion to the next class. Promotions would be strictly based on CBSE norms. In class VIII, children must compulsorily pass in Third Language.
If a child is absent on a examination date, the student must produce a genuine reason. Depending on the reason, class teacher at her discretion may allow the student to appear in a make-up examination that would be usually conducted one week later than the original date. There is a token fee of Rs. 200 per paper for the student. Make-up test is compulsory for missed Term II examinations for class VI onwards.
